Senior staff from NPCAT and from St Peter’s Catholic College handed new flags over to the head boy and head girl and deputy head boy and deputy head girl.

Executive head Michael Burns and head of school Stephanie Garthwaite were joined by trust chief executive officer Hugh Hegarty and chief operating officer Jim Farquahar for the ceremony on a beautiful autumn day.

The flags now fly proudly over the famous school, which recently announced an exciting investment programme as it prepares to celebrate its 80th birthday.
